That's a fair point, but like TTEOT said... when you're the team's best defender and you fold during "crunch time" in the most important games of the season, it has a really negative impact on the team. So yeah - am I being a tough critic on him? Absolutely.. but he didn't play well during the games that mattered, so I think I'm not necessarily being totally unfair here.

Granted, there were a lot of other factors like Martin, Orpik, and Z playing defense like they were at a casual game of winter shinny after a long night of drinking... but nonetheless I thought Kris could have put forward a better effort in the defensive zone.
